Chapter Summary

In this chapter the author devotes his thoughts to the publication process of the Dead Sea Scrolls, especially to its completion, and subsequently to some unknown aspects of the published texts. At this point, the author is rounding off a stage in the life of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Upon the imminent completion of the publication of these scrolls, the Discoveries in the Judaean Desert (hereafter DJD) series will be discontinued. By 2001, almost all the scroll fragments could be examined in scholarly editions. Two more text volumes (vol. XVII, vol. XXXVII), an Introduction volume (vol. XXXIX), a Concordance (see n. 4) and two re-editions of Cave 1 scrolls (vol. XXXII, vol. XL) were produced. Various types of reference tools for locating texts are found in the DJD introductory volume. Finally, the author contemplates on the things not known regarding the published fragments.
